With our fingers crossed that Covid and all variants will allow for International travel, my wife and I have planned a 15 day tour of Switzerland in May. We have purchased the Swiss Rail Pass and reserved accommodations – mostly in B&B’s so we can spend a minimum of 3 nights in each destination. We have lived in the Canadian Rockies for over 40 years so very much enjoy the “mountain lifestyle.” However, we do not have the railway system that Switzerland is famous for, and we very much want to enjoy it.
We don’t necessarily need the quickest train route from point A to B, but rather we don’t want to miss a panoramic or “must see” train route. Looking at our literary, any suggestions or comments on train routes or must see day trips would be greatly appreciated.
Day 1 - 3 Arrive in Luzern from overnight flight into Zurich for 3 nights.
· Train from airport to Luzern
Day 4 – 6 Luzern to Murren on train for 3 nights.
Day 7 – 11 Train from Murren/Lauterbrunnen to Montreux for 5 nights.
· Lots of opportunities here for day trips to Geneva, Zermatt, Lausanne
Day 12 – 15 Train from Montreux to Ascona/Muralto for 4 nights
· Lots of opportunities here for day trips to Lugano, and other small towns in the area
Day 16 Train to Verona Italy
Thanks for all your valuable advice,
